Hurricane-Force Winds Shut Down Eiffel Tower, Kill 6; Yahoo! Maps, Now With Traffic Reports; Surf’s Way Up!; Tokyo Quake Could Kill 13,000; Magnitude 3.1 Quake Hits Mount St. Helens

Hurricane-Force Winds Shut Down Eiffel Tower: Storm With High Winds Kills 6 In France: A powerful storm packing hurricane-force winds lashed northern France on Friday, killing at least six people — some by falling trees — and forcing officials to close down the Eiffel Tower.

Yahoo! Maps, Now With Traffic Reports: My boss Kevin called me from the road this morning, wondering why traffic was backed up in Dallas. As I have happily done before, I visited our local Gridlock Busters traffic page, and then tried something new: Yahoo! Maps with live traffic reports, thanks to a tip from Mike Wendland’s blog. I am impressed — it had an accident that had just occurred on Interstate 30. I’ve added the Yahoo! Maps traffic link to the WXnation city pages. Look for them in the right column section labeled “Road Traffic.”
